That should be Trump’s nickname. The Great Distractor. He and his team have it down to an art form. Why do I say that? Let’s take a look.
The news is showing a rolling screen of all the crazy things that have happened over the past 4 weeks. What are they not discussing? Russia. What was gaining influence over his base? Russia. So, what has he done? Incited hate to pull our eyes in the other direction.
Don’t look over here. This doesn’t matter. Look, I’m dropping a big ol’ bomb over here. Or, I’m supporting the Nazis over here. They both happened at the same time. They both distracted. One just got more coverage than the other, and so that’s what he held onto. Has anyone else noticed that the North Korean news just died as soon as the racist stuff started? They, Trump and his team, knew one would work to distract. And it did. So they stuck with it and are riding it out as long as they can.
Is he racist? Yeah, he is. Read the Village Voice articles from the 1970-80s about his law suits with his father’s company. The ones about unethical leasing policies. Labeling people’s applications and declining them based on race and ethnicity. He’s a racist. And he hired the biggest racist with any clout as his strategist … until he conveniently let him go this week. Is it really official? I’m not sure.
Has anyone else noticed that the racist crap going down is going down in Steve Bannon’s home state? The same state where he started the Tea Party? Where he grew up and went to college? Does everyone think that’s a coincidence or am I the only who thinks he’s partially behind instigating the marches in Charlottesville and the ongoing racist turmoil there? That this whole scenario was dreamed up and executed by a reality tv star president and “filmmaker” strategist who thinks himself the modern-day Riefenstahl? Call me crazy. I don’t care. These people are messed up. They’ll do anything. And I rather be paranoid and crazy than to be silent and watch this shit just play out.
They have an agenda. What it is exactly, I’m not sure. But distraction is the only way they are going to carry it out. A civil war, if they can accomplish it, will be the greatest distraction. And it will give them the authority to cite Martial Law. The ultimate power for a crazed, power hungry leader.
They’re convincing people that both sides were violent. Further instigating. Now they’re letting the people play out their plan. One side drove a car into a crowd. One side showed up with guns and other weapons strapped to their bodies. They were there to pick a fight. They weren’t there to protest. Protestors carry signs, not guns. They were instigating. They were bullying. They were manipulating. And we let it happen.
And it’s all to distract. To get everyone to focus on something other than the president and the White House. To distract from the Russia investigation. To distract from his breaking down of our democracy. His destruction of our values. His gradual usurping of power.
I’m not sure if he wants to become a dictator. It feels that way to me. But whatever it is, there is a bigger goal. And all of the crazy is a distraction. The firings. The stupid speeches about beautiful Confederate statues. North Korea. He’s manipulating. He’s distracting. He’s inciting us to destroy ourselves. And we’re falling in line like a bunch of fucking sheep.
Sorry for the foul language in this post, but foul times call for foul language. That’s just the way it is.
We’re letting them manipulate us. Distract us. Turn us into blithering idiots. I think the man is dumb as a box of rocks, but he’s power hungry. And when one is desperate for whatever fix it is they need, they get crafty. And someone like Trump, with no conscious, will get pretty fucking crafty. One way or another – Korea, civil war or at least civil upheaval, or some other crazy – he’s going to give himself power. Ultimate power. In my opinion, that’s his goal. I could be wrong. Maybe he’s just trying to stay in office and this is how he’s attempting to do it. I think it’s bigger than that, though.
And people talk about Ivanka. That woman is as power hungry and manipulative as he is. Please don’t put your faith in that one. She was honed to look angelic while taking people’s money. Read about all the sham condo deals she and dear ol’ daddy worked on together. The ones where she served her boobs on a platter to get people’s money and then the two of them left people without a condo or their money. The apples didn’t fall far from the tree in that family. That’s for damn sure.
This whole week has driven me over the edge. I’m all about balance and meditation and shit, but this shit ain’t right. Sometimes you have to put the mindfulness aside and fucking fight. They’re pushing me too far. I’m ready for a goddamn fight.
No, see, damn it. That’s what I’m talking about it. Trump – the fucking instigator. I’m against Trump. I want to fight Trump. I want him out of office. Out. Out. Out.
Is there hate in this country? Yes. But he’s stirring it up to the point that he’s inciting people like me to fight against people like him and his far right supporters. And it takes a fucking lot to incite me. But my fight, oddly enough, is with him. Not with the Nazis. The Nazis will go back into their holes when their king is gone. I’m not worried about them. I’m worried about him. If he’s able to stick around long enough and incite enough people, then it’s going down. And we’re going down with it. Trump is the problem. And the Facebook bubble. Facebook, fucking fix your algorithm – or have the Russians promised you the next election. Regardless, Trump needs to be removed from office and not allowed within 100 miles of the White House. Get him out. Now.
